They're not pleasent sounding, when you use them to listen to your ipod. I would like to replace them. I don't know when. Though, I have two "particulars". I have very small ears and would like the ear phone to be able to fit into my ear and I would like the cable that allows them to work to be a few inches longer than the ear buds that came with the IPOD. Is this possible to have that kind of specification? Thanks!
